Ted is a genius

plowed fieldI hate to admit this, but I cry every time I read the poem Spring Plowing by Ted Kooser:

I have no idea why. But I do believe that if you read it slowly enough, and not for content like an email or news article, but give yourself a chance to leave the rational world for just a few seconds and (like a child) suspend your disbelief . . . you can experience both Truth and Beauty in nine short lines.

Kooser is a genius . . . .
